Hello to all!! I have lurked around this forum for some time now. Haven't posted because all my time was spent planning my wedding up until last month. Now, with no more planning, I am ready to join!!
I have had fibro for several years. My first symptoms started around 15, and really progressed around 18. I am 24 now.  I also have big time IBS, and GAD (General Anxiety). I am a major "Type A" girl!! For all you other A's out there you know how much Fibro meshes with us!! I was a gymnast from the time I was 2 to 19 so being active was always the center of my life. Changing that way of life is a big adjustment, but I have a wonfulful familly that has a lways been supportive for me.
Oddly enough, I was diagnosed by my GYN. She has had Fibro for many years, and is the most supportive doctor I have ever met. Because of her Fibro she takes a very serious approach to treating me. I am so thankful I found her.
I am a newly wed, and have the most wonderful and supportive husband possible. He has Major Depressive disorder so we kind of support each other. It sure feels good to be loved for who you are, sickness and all. turn I work as a chef for a law firm, and my husband is a lawyer (not at my firm) Despite all our struggles, we live a very fulfilling and happy life.
Well, that's me in a nutshell! Any questions!! And I already know you are all a great bunch to talk to!

Hi Honey and welcome to the family!!

It's time you jumped into the pool and joined us. You already know what a fun and silly bunch we can be but like you have seen we truly do care. Sounds like you have a great start to a wonderful life and with a hubby who understand your need you have 90% of the battle won. Many don't have the support that you and I cherish so we are very lucky.

Come join our Koffee Klatch and get silly with

Hi, Honey, and welcome!  I'm glad that you finally joined in.  Welcome to our family!  And, congratulations on your marriage!  It's wonderful that you have found such a supportive person to spend the rest of your life with. 

I think nearly all of us are Type A personalities...a bunch of perfectionists here!  turn    Most of us have the anxiety thrown in, too, so you fit perfectly with this imperfect bunch of wonderful people!

I hope you have had a chance to read the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum.  (See, that's my TYpe A personality coming through.  I have to tell you that!  LOL)  You will find a lot out about fibromyalgia. 

I'm so glad that you are here!  Read back posts and ask questions.  That's what we are here for.  I hope to hear more from you soon.

Hi honeybaby and Welcome-

It is so nice to hear you have a good Dr. and a supportive husband. And congratulations on your marriage! Oh yes, Type A personality here too- and "ditto" on the huge adjustment!

Thank you all so much. It really does make a difference to just talk to people who can relate to you.  Yes, I am so blessed to have my husband, he is a strong point in my life, some days he needs to lean on me, and other days I need to lean on him. e work together to make it day in and day out.
